Come See a 4,000 Pound Butter Sculpture at the State Fair of Texas 2013- A Guinness World Record™ Attempt

What says State Fair of Texas more than 4,000 + pounds of butter turned into a sculpture of a cowboy?

We are happy to announce that this piece of art does exist, and you can see it on display from now until October 20th in the Creative Arts Building at Fair Park. If you visit the State Fair of Texas annually (or at least for the past 15 years), you may already be familiar with artist Sharon BuMann’s work. But as a first timer to the fair, I was stunned at the immense undertaking of turning pure unsalted butter into a work of art.

The piece is entitled “Welcome Home Big Tex,” and it is made up of 4,000 pounds of butter donated by Southwest Dairy. BuMann sculpts in a 37-degree refrigerated case  wearing winter clothes. She finished it just before the fair opened this year on September 27th. The tribute to Big Tex is an attempt at a Guinness World Record™ for the world’s largest butter sculpture,  and we wish her the best of luck! According to the guinnessworldrecords.com, it can anywhere around 6 weeks for them to do their research and determine if a record has been broken…  

On view Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sundays through Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. in the Creative Arts Building. Free with State Fair admission.
